{Moss Cross} DIY Spring Vignette

When I think of Spring, I think green!
Since I don't have much of a green thumb, 
moss is my friend!

Here's a simple project to get you ready for Spring and Easter 
that adds a pop of green.             

Supplies needed:

Styrofoam- 1 rectangle, 3 squares
3 bags of sheet moss
glue gun

(In the photo, there's a bottle of styrofoam glue...I tried it and it did not work for me)

Use your glue gun to adhere the styro pieces together to form your cross, like I laid out here in the pic.  Then begin placing the sheet moss on the top and sides until no white styrofoam is showing through. 
 Glue the sheet moss on with your glue gun, and watch those fingers!
When the cross is covered, you can lean it against a wall in a display, or attach a ribbon and hang it on your front door for Easter.
 I have a section of broken wrought iron fencing...hung apart on studs due to their weight...with scripture on vellum secured between. You can read more about it here.
I adore bunnies and nests for spring decor.  I set these cement distressed bunnies near the books and the nest under a glass dome. You can find more spring/easter decor ideas here and here.
 Hurry Spring!!!
